OpenMW V0.27.0 Released And A Sneak Peek On OpenCS

Posted by OpenMW team, 1 December 2013 at 5:14 pm UTC / 14848 views
The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.27.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all operating systems. This release brings the first official release of OpenCS, the OpenMW team's efforts to bring an open source solution for editing content for OpenMW. OpenCS is in an early Alpha state, please take that into consideration when testing! See the full notes below.

   
Check out the release video by the indomitable WeirdSexy:

    Known Issues:
    - PLEASE NOTE! There have been changes to the OpenMW config files. The game will not run with old configurations, but your configuration can be updated by simply running the Launcher. If you normally run OpenMW directly from the executable, please re-run the Launcher once to update.
    - Extreme shaking may occur during cell transitions for some users (enable anti-aliasing as a possible workaround)

    - Implemented Acrobatics
    - Implemented God Mode
    - Implemented torch extinguishing

    - Merged the --master and --plugin switches
    - OpenCS: Implemented a start dialogue

Love this project! But I thought openCS meant counter strike at first!

Yes I think the titles for their news articles need adjusting in future to say OpenMorrowind for a start, some people are getting confused.

There might be some problems with that, considering Morrowind is Bethesda's game and they are known to have tried to sue Mojang for naming their game Scrolls. It's silly, but that's just how big companies work these days.

That's correct. We used to call ourselves OpenMorrowind, but that has been change just to avoid any copyright problems.

I meant the titles for the news posts here on GOL, i didn't mean change the project name but not many people know what OpenMW is when they see it.

Maybe something like "OpenMW open source Morrowind engine release x" or something like that in future?

These guys are making rapid progress, and that's awesome! I look forward to the day when I can play an Elder Scrolls game as God intended - natively, on Linux.
